Don't get me wrong. It had its terrible moments and some of the speeches were bland, but there were very few games I didn't have at least some interest in. If a decent number of these games are in the launch window, I'll buy day 1 without a regret. Hell, if I could just get pikmin 3 and zombi up at launch, I'd be okay.

EDIT: f**k it. You all know me. I'll buy it day one no matter what. It's a Nintendo console.

That conference was lackluster. The post-show stream though? Amazing.

Also, they decided to not show this new Wii U WarioWare game, for some reason?

I'm just not sold on anything this year. It's just way too much of more of the same. Good thing I have a backlog.

That extra Portal 2 content for owners of the Hydra controller is coming to PS3 as Move levels. Nice, I actually got the PS3 version a few weeks ago.

Dead Island is getting a sequel, Dead Island: Riptide.

Persona 4 Arena is out August 7, here's a new trailer.

Here's some fancy-lookin' Star Wars 1313 gameplay footage.

The Last Guardian is still coming, despite not being at E3. Maybe TGS?

The Last of Us isn't coming this year. Kind of already knew that, but I'm sad nonetheless.

I haven't gotten to see Nintendo's conference yet (heck, I'm in the middle of the ocean right now, it was a minor miracle that I got to watch the other two), but I have read about all the stuff they announced. As far as I'm concerned, no one really "won" E3 this year. It was kind of a grab bag of things that I want and things I could give two shits about. It broke down kinda like this for me:

Microsoft:
Halo 4 - f**k yes!
Splinter Cell - That looks pretty cool, but I'm not crazy about Sam's new voice. (I can get over it though)
Kinect in new EA Sports games - evz
s**t tons of media things - Seeing as I rarely get the opportunity to get my Xbox online, I'm not really in the market for these things.
Smart Glass - eh
Gears of War - Hope it's not more of the same.

Sony: (I think Sony had the coolest screen between them and Microsoft.)
The Last of Us - Oh.My.f**king.God I need this game in my life.
Tomb Raider - I really like where they're going with this series.
Beyond - What part of that was a game?
Playstation All-Stars - Looks kind of bland. When did the Big Daddy become a Playstation All-Star?
Wonderbook - Hey, Sony found a way to print a bunch of giant AR cards.

Nintendo:
As I said, I didn't see the conference, but from what I read it seemed like a lot more rehashing NSMB and third parties shoe horning touch controls into games that will be over a year old by the time the Wii U comes out. The Wii U has potential to be really cool but I think Nintendo is selling it short. Why not throw some better hardware in there and make it a true next generation machine? Nothing says you can't have powerful AND innovative hardware. Our only hope is that, with the better graphics, the quality bar will be set to a point where cash-in minigame collections will no longer be the cash cow they were on the Wii.

Actually, it looks awesome.

Uncharted: Star Wars.

Honestly, I never pictured a bounty hunter being the type to hide behind cover to shoot at people. But I guess not every bounty hunter can be as badass as Mr. Fett.

Real bounty hunters would pick up jawas and use them as fleshy shields.

Super excited for Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Hot Pursuit's Autolog and cop and robbers gameplay mashed up with the open world, billboards and gates, and road rules of Burnout Paradise? f**k yes.

I was initially skeptical that New Super Mario Bros. 2 would be anything other than a retread of the two existing NSMB games, but it sounds like they're doing a few interesting things. It seems lives have (finally) been dropped, with a new goal of collecting 1 million coins. Also, the original Raccoon Tail is back. There's an Iwata Asks video that details the extent of Mario's new coin obsession and a Coin Rush mode. I think the money theme would be a better fit for Wario (New Super Wario Bros. would be great!) but this looks pretty good nonetheless.

Speaking of 3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening is getting a US release.
